#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 7

So to further be tinkering with the content of what I post here on Mondays, I think I’m going to just take a single photo and expand on it, instead of just trying to sum up my week altogether…

Aaron and I don’t really go to the movies very often — I’m more of a binge-13-seasons-of-a-TV-show-as-quickly-as-possible kinda girl — but my friends have talked about Split, and I’ve seen people rave about it on social media, so we went to see it.

I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since we saw it!

#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 6

Today is seriously the Mondayest of Mondays I’ve had in a while. Literally, when I remembered it was Monday and I needed to post something, I thought, “Fuuuuuuuuuck, it’s Monday.”

But it’s week 6 and I’m not about to miss a Monday now!

Contract #3: Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!

Originally I was going to wait until after my February vacation (and thus, the end of my current contract) to secure my third travel nurse assignment, in hopes of finding some good crisis rates.

But, I get antsy, and I’m a planner, so I’ve already signed contract #3 about a month and a half in advance! Continue reading Contract #3: Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!

#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 2

So far, so good for 2017! I’ve been doing my best to keep up and post photos daily, even while on vacation. It’s been easy since I’ve been in service areas, but later this week we’ll be in more remote parts of Iceland, and I’m not quite sure if I’ll even have service out there. The camper van does have WiFi, so I’ve been able to keep up with posting a pic a day to Instagram at least.

I do have a few more photos pre-Iceland to show since my last update. Continue reading #Maddie2017Challenge: Week 2

#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 1

So for part of my New Years resolution, I wanted to actually use my blog, and this is how I’m going to do it! I will post a picture a day on Instagram, then every Monday I’ll post sort of a “re-cap” and summary of my week as told by Instagram. Continue reading #Maddie2017Challenge: Week 1
